Draft of Memorandum of Agreement 

Memorandum of Agreement made this 

day of 1954 A.D. by and between the 

City of Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, a Municipal 
Corporation, hereinafter called the City ; the Coun- 
ty of Cook, a Public Body Corporate, hereinafter 
called the County ; and the State of Illinois acting 
by and through its Department of Public Works 
and Buildings, hereinafter called the State, 
Witnesseth: 

Whereas, in the Chicago Metropolitan Area the 
transportation problems and traffic congestion are 
increasing rapidly, and 

Whereas, it has become apparent that the finan- 
cial burden of relieving traffic congestion has come 
to rest principally upon the City, County, and 



State, as well as upon the Federal government 
through its Federal-aid highway programs, and 

Whereas, the determination for a solution of 
these transportation and traffic congestion prob- 
lems is the subject of separate and isolated con- 
siderations involving the construction of express- 
ways, toll roads, railroad grade separations and 
other mass transportation facilities (both electric 
and steam), and 

Whereas, it is necessary that an integrated study 
be made of all transportation facilities from which 
there can result a correlated plan for such trans- 
portation facilities as will complement each other, 
and 

Whereas, the accomplishments of this transpor- 
tation survey will be of great and lasting benefit 
to the people of the City of Chicago, County of 
Cook, and the State of Illinois, as well as enhanc- 
ing the welfare of the United States as a whole; 

Now, Therefore, in consideration of the premises 
and the mutual undertakings of the parties hereto 
and in conformity with all applicable laws it is 
agreed : 

1. Objective. The objective of this agreement 
is to conduct a transportation survey, including 
but not limited to, the making of traffic surveys, 
the study of traffic facilities and research con- 
cerning the development of the several areas 
within the Chicago Metropolitan Area, as af- 
fected by growth and changes in population and 
economic activity, and a collection and review of 
data relating to all factors affecting the judi- 
cious planning, construction, reconstruction, im- 
provement, maintenance and operation of all 
types of transportation facilities. 

2. Transportation Survey Committee. There 
is hereby constituted a Transportation Survey 
Committee, hereinafter called the Committee, 
consisting of the following members : 



Commissioner, Depart- 
ment of Public Works 

Superintendent of High- 
ways

the objectives of this agreement and be respon-

erman Bohling requested that it be noted in the

The following is said ordinance as passed : 

An Ordinance 
Authorizing the construction and operation of a 
toll bridge by the City of Chicago, across the 
Calumet River and approaches thereto and au- 
thorizing the issuance of $88,000,000 City of 
Chicago Calumet Skyway Toll Bridge Revenue 
Bonds for the purpose of defraying the cost of 
constructing said bridge and approaches, pre- 
scribing the details of said bonds, and providing 
for the collection, segregation and distribution 
of the revenues of said bridge, for the purpose 
of paying the cost of maintenance and operation 
of said bridge, and payment of the principal of 
and interest on said bonds. 

Whereas, the East-West Toll Road being con- 
structed across the State of Indiana terminates at 
the Indiana-Illinois State line, immediately adja- 
cent to the City of Chicago, near One Hundred 
Sixth Street, and in order to provide adequate 
facilities for the movement and distribution of 
motor vehicles using said East-West Toll Road and 
existing Chicago streets and boulevards, it is nec- 
essary that a bridge be constructed over the Calu- 
met River, with adequate approaches to eliminate 
intersection at grade with any street, tunnel, public 
road thoroughfare, highway, railroad or street rail- 
road, thus affording a through traffic way for such 
motor vehicles into the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, plans and specifications showing the 
location, size, type and method of construction of 
said bridge and approaches thereto and an estimate 
of the cost of the construction and acquisition of 
properties necessary for the construction of said 
bridge and approaches thereto have been prepared 
by DeLeuw, Cather & Company, the independent 
engineers employed for that purpose, which plans 
specifications and estimate of cost are on file with 
the City Clerk and are hereby approved by this 
City Council; and 

Whereas, in order to relieve traffic congestion as 
above set forth, it is hereby determined that a toll 
bridge over the Calumet River, together with the 
necessary approaches thereto be constructed, lo- 
cated as described in Section 2.01 of this Ordi- 
nance and that toll bridge revenue bonds be issued 
to pay the cost thereof, as authorized by Chapter 
24 Article 27A of the Revised Cities and Villages 
Act, approved August 15, 1941, as amended, 111. 
Rev. Stat. 1953; and 

Whereas the estimated cost of constructing said 
bridge and ' approaches thereto, including interest 
during construction and for twelve months there- 
after, engineering, legal, architectural, development 
of contract documents, financing costs and other 
expenses incident to the construction and acquisi- 
tion of the necessary property and to the financ- 
ing thereof, including the cost of acquiring exist- 



ing franchises, rights, plans and works of and re- 
lating to said bridge and approaches thereto, is 
$88,000,000; and 

Whereas, no funds are available to pay the cost 
of the construction of said bridge and approaches 
and it is necessary that this City borrow money 
and in evidence thereof issue City of Chicago Calu- 
met Skyway Toll Bridge Revenue Bonds in the 
principal amount of $88,000,000, payable solely 
from the net revenues to be derived from the 
operation of said bridge, to pay all costs in con- 
nection with the construction thereof; now, there- 
fore, 
Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 

Chicago :

Section 2.01. Description of Project. That 
it is necessary and for the best interests of the 
City of Chicago that a toll bridge together with 
the necessary approaches thereto be constructed 
in and by said City across the Calumet River, de- 
scribed as follows: 

The bridge over the Calumet River will have 
a minimum clearance of 125 feet above Chi- 
cago city datum, or such lower level as ap- 
proved by the Chief of Engineers and the Sec- 
retary of the Army. It will be a three span 
cantilever truss. The southerly approach to the 
bridge begins at the Illinois-Indiana state line 
in a location between Indianapolis Avenue and 
the westerly line of right of way of the Penn- 
sylvania Railroad Company. From this loca- 
tion the bridge extends in a northwesterly di- 
rection to E. 100th Street, whence it veers 
slightly to the west, crossing the Calumet 
River on the high level bridge, and thence 
continues, again northwesterly, parallel to the 
westerly line of right of way of the Pennsyl- 
vania Railroad Company to the northerly ter- 
minus, excepting for ramps, in the vicinity of 
S. State Street and E. 63rd Street. The bridge 
and its approaches will provide for three 12 
foot lanes in each direction separated by an 
elevated median strip. There will be a direct 
connection at the Indiana state line with the 
East-West toll road now under construction by 
the Indiana Toll Road Commission. A north- 
bound entrance ramp is located on S. Indiana- 
polis Avenue about 200 feet northerly of the 
state line. Northbound exit ramps are located 
at E. 87th Street, at S. Stony Island Avenue 
and E. 77th Street, at E. 73rd Street, at S. 
Keefe Avenue, at S. State Street and W. 65th 
Street, extended; and at E. 61st Street ap- 
proximately 150 feet east of S. State Street. 
Southbound entrance ramps are located at E. 
60th Street and S. Wabash Avenue, at E. 66th 
Street and S. Wabash Avenue, at S. Anthony 
Avenue and E. 69th Street, at E. 73rd Street, 
at S. Stony Island Avenue and E. 77th Street,

December 9, 1954 



at S. Anthony Avenue and S. Crandon Avenue. 
A southbound exit ramp is located in S. In- 
dianapolis Avenue at about approximately 100 
feet northerly of the state line. The toll plaza 
is located along S. Anthony Avenue between E. 
87th Street and E. 89th Street. The bridge 
and its approaches in their entirety shall be 
completely grade separated so as to provide 
clearances of 14 feet minimum above all streets 
and clearances above railroads complying with 
railroad and Illinois Commerce Commission 
regulations. 

That this City Council has heretofore caused 
plans, specifications and estimate of cost of the 
construction of said Bridge to be prepared, said 
plans and specifications showing the location, size, 
type and method of construction thereof, and the 
estimate of the cost of the construction of such 
Bridge, including acquisition of all land and ease- 
ments necessary for the approaches and avenues 
of access to and from said Bridge, engineering 
fees, attorney's fees, interest during construction 
and for twelve months thereafter, costs of financ- 
ing, and all other necessary and incidental ex- 
penses and the same are hereby approved by this 
City Council and ordered filed in the office of the 
City Clerk, and that the estimated total of all costs 
relating to the construction of such Bridge has 
heretofore been determined to be the sum of 
Eighty-eight Million Dollars ($88,000,000). 

That it be and it is hereby found and determined 
that the estimated period of usefulness of such 
Bridge will be in excess of forty (40) years. 

Section 2.02. Authorization and Limitation of 
Issue. That, as authorized by said Chapter 24, 
Article 27A above referred to, for the purpose of 
defraying the cost of the construction of said 
Bridge, including the acquisition of all land and 
easements necessary for the approaches and ave- 
nues of access to and egress from said Bridge, and 
all necessary appurtenances therefor, including all 
engineering, legal expenses, interest during con- 
struction and for twelve months thereafter, costs 
of financing, and all other necessary and incidental 
expenses, there is hereby authorized to be issued 
Calumet Skyway Toll Bridge Revenue Bonds of the 
City of Chicago in the principal amount of Eigh- 
ty-eight Million Dollars ($88,000,000) and the 
proceeds of said Bonds are hereby appropriated 
for that purpose, said Bonds to be payable solely 
from the Net Revenues derived from the opera- 
tion of said Bridge, and which Bonds shall not 
constitute an indebtedness of said City within the 
meaning of any constitutional, statutory or char- 
ter limitation, and neither the taxing power, nor 
the general credit of the said City of Chicago shall 
be pledged to the payment of either principal or 
interest of said Bonds. While said Bonds are out- 
standing, no additional Calumet Skyway Toll 
Bridge Revenue Bonds shall be issued, unless a 
certificate is filed with the City Clerk executed by 
the Consulting Engineer and approved by the City 
Council, evidencing that additional funds are re- 
quired for completion of said Bridge, setting out 
the estimated amount of funds necessary for the 
completion of the Bridge whereupon the City 
Council shall authorize additional City of Chicago 
Calumet Skyway Toll Bridge Revenue Bonds in an 
amount sufficient to produce the sum necessary 
to complete said Bridge. 

After the construction of said Bridge is com- 
pleted as evidenced by certificate of the Consulting 
Engineer, no additional Calumet Skyway Toll 
Bridge Revenue Bonds shall be issued. Provided, 



however, additional City of Chicago Calumet Sky- 
way Toll Bridge Revenue Bonds may be issued to 
pay the cost of repairing damage to the Bridge 
not covered by insurance, when recommended by 
the Consulting Engineer by certificate filed with 
the City Clerk and approved by the City Council 
setting out the estimated amount of funds neces- 
sary to pay such cost and the facts respecting 
such damage and the necessity of making such re- 
pairs in order to keep the Bridge in condition for 
operation. All of such additional bonds shall be 
authorized by supplemental ordinance consistent 
with the provisions of this Ordinance and such 
additional City of Chicago Calumet Skyway Toll 
Bridge Revenue Bonds shall be entitled to equal 
and proportionate benefits with all other Bonds 
issued hereunder.

shall be designated City of Chicago Calumet Sky- 
way Toll Bridge Revenue Bonds and may be issued

Subject to the provisions for registration and 
transfer contained herein and in the Ordinance, 
this Bond shall have all of the qualities of a 
negotiable instrument under the Law Merchant 
and the Negotiable Instrument Law of the State 
of Illinois and shall pass by delivery unless reg- 
istered as to principal in the owner's name at the 
principal office of the Registration Agent in the 
City of Chicago, Illinois, and such registration 
noted hereon, after which no valid transfer here- 
of can be made, except at such office by the reg- 
istered owner in person or by duly authorized 
attorney and similarly noted hereon, until after 
registered transfer to bearer, but after such 
registered transfer to bearer this Bond shall be 
again transferable by delivery. Such registration, 
however, shall not affect the negotiability of the 
coupons which shall remain payable to bearer 
and transferable by delivery. The City, each 
Paying Agent, the Fiscal Agent, the Registration 
Agent and any other person may treat the 
bearer of this Bond ( or if this Bond be registered, 
the registered owner) and the bearer of any 
coupon hereunto appertaining, as the absolute 
owner hereof and thereof and for all other pur- 
poses of receiving payment hereof and thereof 
and for all other purposes and shall not be af- 
fected by any notice to the contrary, whether 
this Bond or such coupon be overdue or not.

registrable as to principal only, in the denomina- 
tion of $1,000, and as Registered Bonds without 
coupons in the denominations of $50,000 or more.

without coupons are interchangeable for Bonds 
of the same interest rates upon presentation 
thereof for such purpose by the holder or reg- 
istered owner at the principal office of the Reg- 
istration Agent in the City of Chicago, Illinois. 
Any reasonable expense in connection with the 
registration, transfer, or exchange of or to Reg- 
istered Bonds as defined herein shall be paid by 
the Bondholder. 

The City covenants and agrees that so long as 
any of the Bonds remain outstanding it will es- 
tablish and collect rates of toll and other charges 
for the use of said Bridge to yield Revenues 
sufficient for the service of the Bonds, including 
interest, sinking fund, principal and reserve fund 
payments, and for certain expenses, including 
the reasonable cost of maintaining and operat- 
ing said Bridge and that it will limit the cir- 
cumstances under which such rates of toll and 
other charges may be reduced ; all as more fully 
set forth and subject to the further terms and 
conditions contained in the Ordinance. 

It is hereby certified, recited and declared that 
all acts, conditions and things required to exist, 
happen and be performed, precedent to and in 
the issuance of this Bond, exist, have happened 
and have been performed in due time, form and 
manner as required by the Constitution and 
Statutes of the State of Illinois. Neither this 
Bond, nor the payment of the principal of this 
Bond nor any part thereof, nor any interest 
thereon constitutes an indebtedness of the City

er (or if such Bond be registered, the registered 
owner, or to any bearer of any Bond registered to 
bearer) of any Coupon Bond, or to any registered 
owner of any Registered Bond, shall be valid and 
effectual and shall be a discharge of the City, of

respect of the liability upon the Bond or coupon or 
claim for interest, as the case may be, to the ex- 
tent of the sum or sums so paid. 

Section 2.08. Registration. The City will cause 
to be kept at the principal office of the Registra- 
tion Agent in Chicago, Illinois, at all times while 
any of the Bonds containing provisions for regis- 
tration and transfer shall be outstanding and un- 
paid, books for the registration and transfer of 
such Bonds. Upon presentation at such office for 
such purpose by any bearer of any Coupon Bond 
containing provisions for registration as to prin- 
cipal only, the City will, under such reasonable 
regulations as (with the approval of the Registra- 
tion Agent) it may prescribe from time to time, 
register, or cause to be registered therein, in the 
name of the bearer or his nominee, the ownership, 
as to principal only, of any such presented Coupon 
Bonds, such registration being noted on the Bonds. 
After such registration and notation, no transfer of 
any such Coupon Bond registered otherwise than 
as to bearer shall be valid unless evidenced by a 
written instrument of transfer, in form satisfactory 
to the Registration Agent, duly executed by the 
registered owner in person or by his duly author- 
ized agent ; but any such Coupon Bond so registered 
may be discharged from registration, and transfer- 
ability by delivery be restored, by a like transfer 
to bearer similarly registered and noted, and after 
such transfer to bearer such Bond shall be a bearer 
bond. Any such Coupon Bond containing provis- 
ions for registration may again, from time to time, 
in like manner, be registered as to principal only, 
or be transferred to bearer without cost to the 
Bondholder. 

Section 2.09. Transfer of Registered Bonds. 
Any Registered Bond containing provisions for 
transfer may be transferred pursuant to its pro- 
visions at the principal office of the Registration

Agent in Chicago, Illinois, by surrender of such 
Bond for cancellation, accompanied by a written 
instrument of transfer, in form satisfactory to the 
Registration Agent, duly executed by the reg- 
istered owner in person or by his duly authorized 
agent, and thereupon the City will issue, or cause 
to be issued, and delivered in the City of Chicago, 
in the name of the transferee or transferees, a new 
Registered Bond of like form, interest rate, prin- 
cipal amount and maturity, dated so that there 
shall result no gain or loss of interest as a result 
of such transfer. Registered Bonds without cou- 
pons may be issued in the denomination of $50,000 
or more. To the extent of denominations author- 
ized in respect of any such Bond by the terms 
thereof or by the terms of this Ordinance or of any 
supplemental ordinance, one such Registered Bond 
may be transferred for several such Registered 
Bonds of the same series of like form, interest rate 
and maturity, and for a like aggregate principal 
amount, and several such Registered Bonds may 
be transferred for one or several such Registered 
Bonds, respectively, of like form, interest rate, 
maturity, and for a like aggregate principal 
amount. Any reasonable expense in connection 
with the registration, transfer, or exchange of 
or to Registered Bonds as defined herein shall be 
paid by the Bondholder. 

Section 2.10. Exchange of Bonds. The bearer 
of Coupon Bonds which at the time are not reg- 
istered and the registered owner of Registered 
Bonds or Coupon Bonds registered as to princi- 
pal in the aggregate amount of $50,000 or more 
may at any time, provided such Bonds shall not 
have been called for redemption, surrender the 
same for cancellation at the principal office of the 
Registration Agent, with all unmatured coupons 
attached, and in the case of Registered Bonds, or 
Coupon Bonds registered as to principal with 
instruments of transfer satisfactory to the Regis- 
tration Agent, and shall be entitled to receive in 
exchange therefor an equal aggregate principal 
amount of Bonds of the same interest rate and 
maturity, of any one or more of the forms, the 
issue of which has been provided for; and the 
City will execute and deliver in the City of Chi- 
cago, the Bonds necessary to make such exchange. 

Upon the issue of any Registered Bond serial 
numbers covering the Coupon Bonds of the same 
interest rate and maturity and of an equal ag- 
gregate principal amount shall be reserved. The 
serial numbers so reserved shall be endorsed on 
such Registered Bond, which may also bear such 
an endorsement or legend satisfactory to the Reg- 
istration Agent as may be required to conform to 
usage or law with respect thereto. 

Whenever Registered Bonds with proper instru- 
ments of transfer, shall be surrendered to the 
Registration Agent for exchange for Coupon Bonds 
of like interest rate and maturity, the City will 
execute and deliver in the City of Chicago in ex- 
change, a like principal amount of Coupon Bonds 
of the same interest rate and maturity, in bearer 
form, of the serial number or numbers so re- 
served upon the issue of the Registered Bond or 
Bonds so surrendered, bearing coupons so that no 
gain or loss of interest shall result from such ex- 
change. Any reasonable expense in connection with 
the registration, transfer, or exchange of or to 
Registered Bonds as defined herein shall be paid 
by the Bondholder. 

Section 2.11. Cancellation of Transferred or 
Exchanged Bonds and Status of New Bonds. In 
every case of an exchange of Bonds, and of a 
transfer of any Registered Bond or Coupon Bond 



registered as to principal, the surrendered Bonds 
and coupons, if any, shall be cancelled by the 
Registration Agent and surrendered to the City. 
As a condition of any such exchange (but not for 
any exchange of temporary Bonds for other tem- 
porary Bonds or for definitive Bonds), or of any 
registration or transfer, the City shall require the 
payment of a sum sufficient to reimburse it for 
any stamp tax or other governmental charge that 
may be imposed thereon. All Bonds executed, au- 
thenticated and delivered in exchange for or upon 
transfer of Bonds so surrendered shall be valid 
obligations of the City, evidencing the same debt 
as the Bonds surrendered, and shall be entitled to 
all the benefits and protection of this Ordinance 
to the same extent as the Bonds in exchange for 
or upon transfer of which they were executed, 
authenticated and delivered. 

Section 2.12. Place of Payment and Notice. The 
Bonds and coupons may be presented for payment 
or collection at the principal office of the Deposi- 
tary in the City of Chicago or at such other place 
or places, if any, as may be specified in the respec- 
tive Bonds and coupons. All notices, requests or 
demands addressed to the City in respect to this 
Ordinance and of the Bonds and coupons shall be 
served or made at the office of the City Clerk in 
the City of Chicago, Illinois. 

Section 2.13. Bonds Mutilated, Lost or Des- 
troyed. In case any Bond shall become mutilated 
in respect of the body of such Bond or the cou- 
pons, if any, appertaining thereto, or shall be 
believed by the City to have been destroyed, stolen 
or lost, upon proof of ownership satisfactory to 
the City and upon surrender of such mutilated 
Bond with its coupons, if any, at the office of the 
City Comptroller, or at any other office or agency 
of the City maintained for such purpose, or upon 
the receipt of evidence satisfactory to the City of 
such destruction, theft or loss, and upon receipt 
also of indemnity satisfactory to the City, and 
upon payment of all expenses incurred by the City 
for any investigation relating thereto, and for 
each new Bond issued under this Section, the City 
shall execute and deliver in the City of Chicago, a 
new Bond or Bonds of the same interest rate and 
maturity and for the same aggregate principal 
amount with the coupons, if any, appertaining 
thereto, of like tenor and date, bearing the same 
issue number or numbers, with such notations as 
the City shall determine, in exchange and substitu- 
tion for and upon cancellation of the mutilated 
Bond and its coupons, if any, or in lieu of and in 
substitution for the Bond and its coupons, if any, 
so lost, stolen or destroyed. 

If any such destroyed, stolen or lost Bond shall 
have matured, payment of the amount due thereon 
may be made by the City on receipt of like proof, 
indemnity and payment of expenses. 

Any duplicate Bonds or coupons issued pursuant 
to this Section 2.13 shall be entitled to equal and 
proportionate benefits with all other Bonds issued 
hereunder. The City shall not be required to treat 
both the original Bond and any duplicate Bond as 
being outstanding for the purpose of determining 
the principal amount of Bonds which may be is- 
sued hereunder or for the purpose of determining 
any percentage of Bonds outstanding hereunder, 
but both the original and duplicate Bonds shall be 
treated as one and the same. 

Section 2.14. Temporary Bonds. Until definite 
Bonds shall be prepared the City may cause to be 
executed and delivered, in lieu of such definitive 
Bonds and subject to the same provisions, limita-

tions and conditions as are applicable in the case 
of definitive Bonds, except that they may be in any 
denominations authorized by the City and shall 
be registerable as to principal and (except to the 
extent that interest thereon may be represented 
by coupons) interest and may be discharged from 
registration in the same manner and subject to 
the same provisions (except to the extent that 
such temporary Bonds are registerable as to both 
principal and interest) herein contained applicable 
to definitive Coupon Bonds, one or more temporary 
printed, lithographed or engraved Bonds in bearer 
form without coupons, or with one or more coupons 
as may be authorized by the City, substantially 
of the' same tenor and, until exchanged for defi- 
nitive Bonds, entitled and subject to the same 
benefits and provisions of this Ordinance as defi- 
nitive Bonds of the same character, interest rates 
and maturity issued hereunder. Temporary Bonds 
shall be exchangeable only for definitive Bonds of 
the same maturity and bearing the same rate of 
interest. Temporary Bonds shall be exchangeable 
from time to time at the office of the City Comp- 
troller, without expense to the holder, for defini- 
tive Bonds of like aggregate principal amount, 
when prepared, of the same character, interest 
rate and maturity as the case may be and of the 
denominations authorized. All temporary Bonds 
so surrendered shall be cancelled by the City. 
Without unnecessary delay the City will execute 
and will furnish such definitive Bonds, to be ex- 
changed in the City of Chicago for said temporary 
Bonds upon surrender thereof to the City. The 
definitive Bonds shall be lithographed or engraved, 
in whole or in part, except that the text and reverse 
of the Bonds and coupons may be printed or re- 
produced from type composition. 

In connection with any exchange of temporary 
for definitive Bonds hereunder, the City may make 
appropriate arrangements with the Depositary and 
the Fiscal Agent so that any holder may at his 
option deliver Bonds for exchange and receive, free 
of expense to such holder, Bonds on any such ex- 
change at the office of the Depositary or Fiscal 
Agent, acting as agent for such holder.

The monies so deposited in this fund shall be 
disbursed by warrants to the City Treasurer signed 
by the Mayor and countersigned by the Comptroller 
for the purposes provided in this Ordinance and in 
any Supplemental Ordinance. 

ARTICLE IV. 

Section 4.01. Redemption of Bonds. These Bonds 
are redeemable before maturity at the prices and 
upon the terms set forth in Section 2.03 of Article 
II of this Ordinance. 

The City Comptroller shall determine by lot, in 
any manner deemed by him to be fair, the serial 
numbers of the Coupon Bonds to be redeemed, 
drawing the same from the serial numbers of out- 
standing Coupon Bonds and the serial numbers 
then reserved against outstanding Registered 
Bonds and shall certify to the Depositary the serial 
numbers so determined. 

Moneys in the Sinking Fund Account shall be 
applied as rapidly as practicable to the purchase 
of Bonds, either after invitation for tenders or in 
the open market. Bonds so purchased shall be 
purchased at the lowest prices reasonably obtain- 
able, not exceeding their principal amount and 
any premium at which the same are next redeem- 
able, plus accrued interest to the date of purchase. 

Each interest date, January 1, 1959 or later, 
when there is $50,000 or more in the Sinking Fund, 
Bonds shall be called and redeemed so as to exhaust 
as near as possible all money in the Sinking Fund 
Account. 

Section 4.02. Publication of Notice of Redemp- 
tion. The City Comptroller shall cause notice of 
any intended redemption to be published in at least 
one daily newspaper printed in the English lan- 
guage and published, and of general circulation in 
Chicago, Illinois, and in at least one daily or finan- 
cial newspaper printed in the English language and 
published, and of general circulation in the Bor- 
ough of Manhattan, The City of New York, State 
of New York (and if such Bonds are payable or 
collectible in one or more places as well as or in 
lieu of the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New 
York, in at least one daily newspaper printed in the 
English language and published, and of general cir- 
culation in each city in which the principal of any 
of the Bonds so to be redeemed is payable or col- 
lectible ) , once a week ( on any business day of the 
week) for two successive calendar weeks (the first 
publication to be not less than thirty (30) days nor 
more than sixty (60) days prior to the redemption 
date), stating the redemption date and redemp- 
tion price and designating the serial numbers of 
the Bonds to be redeemed by giving the individual 
numbers of each Bond or by stating that all Bonds 
with certain given numbers or letters have been 
called, or that all Bonds between two stated num- 
bers, both inclusive, have been called, for redemp- 
tion and requiring that such Bonds be then surren- 
dered with, in the case of Coupon Bonds, all inter- 
est coupons maturing on or subsequent to the said 
redemption date at the office of the City Treasurer 
or, at the option of the respective holders thereof, 
at the office of the Depositary or, at the office of 
the Fiscal Agent in the Borough of Manhattan, 
The City of New York, State of New York, or, at 
the office of any Paying Agent where the principal 
of and interest on the Bonds of any series may be 
made payable for redemption at the said redemp- 
tion price, giving notice also that further interest 
on such Bonds will not accrue after the designated 
redemption date. If any of the Coupon Bond serial 



numbers so drawn shall be the serial numbers of 
Coupon Bonds then reserved against outstanding 
Registered Bonds, publication of the numbers of 
such Coupon Bonds shall be sufficient notice to the 
holders of Registered Bonds affected. 

A similar notice shall also be mailed by the 
Registration Agent to the respective registered 
owners of any Bonds designated for redemption at 
least thirty (30) days but not more than sixty 
(60) days prior to the redemption date at their 
addresses appearing on the Bond registration 
books, which notice shall, in addition to setting 
forth the above information, set forth, in the case 
of each Registered Bond called only in part, the 
portion of the principal thereof which is to be 
redeemed; provided that such mailing shall not be 
a condition precedent to such redemption and fail- 
ure to mail or to receive any such notice shall not 
affect the validity of the proceedings for the re- 
demption of such Bonds. 

In case of the redemption as herein permitted of 
all of the Bonds then outstanding notice of redemp- 
tion shall be given by publication and mailing in 
the same manner as for partial redemption of 
Bonds, except that the notice of redemption need 
not specify the serial numbers of the Bonds to be 
redeemed. 

Section 4.03. Deposit of Redemption Funds and 
Payment of Bonds. Prior to the redemption date 
specified in each such notice the City shall make 
available to the Depositary a sum of money suffi- 
cient to redeem, at the premium payable as here- 
inbefore provided, the Bonds designated for re- 
demption (and the called part of any Registered 
Bond called only in part) and to pay the interest 
accrued thereon up to said redemption date, such 
moneys to be applied by the Depositary as Paying 
Agent and as trustee to the payment of such Bonds 
and the called part of any such Registered Bond 
and such accrued interest thereon upon presenta- 
tion and surrender of such coupons, if any, and of 
such Bonds together with, in the case of Registered 
Bonds, duly executed instruments of transfer at 
the principal office of the Depositary or at such 
other place or places, if any, as may be specified in 
such Bonds and coupons. After the receipt by the 
Depositary of such deposit, if any be required, such 
Bonds so called and the called part of any Regis- 
tered Bond called only in part, whether or not 
presented for redemption, shall cease to be entitled 
to any benefit under this Ordinance other than the 
right to receive payment of the redemption price; 
no interest will accrue thereon on or after the 
redemption date specified in such notice; claims 
for interest, if any, appertaining to such Bonds and 
the called part of any Registered Bond called only 
in part maturing after that date, shall be void; 
and, except as to the uncalled part of any Regis- 
tered Bond called only in part, the holders of bonds 
so called for redemption shall look, after such 
redemption date, for the payment of such Bonds 
and accrued interest and premium only to the 
funds held by the Depositary and allocated for that 
purpose as hereinbefore provided and the City 
shall be relieved of all liability in respect thereto ; 
all provided that the funds allocated as aforesaid 
remain available therefor. All Bonds so redeemed 
shall forthwith be cancelled, and delivered to the 
City Comptroller, and no Bonds shall be issued 
hereunder in place thereof, except that if less than 
the entire principal amount of any Registered Bond 
shall be so redeemed upon presentation of such 
Registered Bond so called in part and proper 
instruments of transfer at or after the time fixed

for the payment of said Bonds so called for re- 
demption, payment of the redemption price of the 
part thereof "so called shall be made upon surrender 
and cancellation of such Registered Bond so pre- 
sented and one or more Bonds of the same charac- 
ter, interest rate and maturity in coupon or regis- 
tered form for an aggregate principal amount 
equal to the uncalled and unpaid balance of the 
principal amount of such Registered Bond will be 
issued bv the City and shall be delivered in the 
City of Chicago or sent by registered mail by the 
Registration Agent to the owner of such Regis- 
tered Bond without expense to such owner. 

All money so paid to the Paying Agent for the 
redemption of particular Bonds or the called part 
thereof shall be held by it in trust to be applied on 
or after the redemption date to the payment 
thereof. 

The City Comptroller shall make such suitable 
arrangements as he deems necessary or desirable 
to transfer or cause to be transferred funds to the 
Fiscal Agent and to any Paying Agent at whose 
office the Bonds so called for redemption may be 
presented and to arrange for the payment and 
cancellation of such Bonds. 

ARTICLE V. 

Rates of Toll for Use of Bridge; Receipt and 
Deposit of Revenues; Establishment of 
Bridge Revenue Fund and Accounts 
and Requirements Therefor. 

Section 5.01. Revenues and Funds. The City 
covenants that prior to the opening of the Bridge 
for traffic it will fix and place in effect an initial 
schedule of tolls and that the rates of tolls in such 
initial schedule will not be changed without the 
approval of the Consulting Engineers, and that 
from time to time and as often as it shall appear 
to be necessary, it will request the Consulting 
Engineers to make recommendations as to the 
revision of the schedule of tolls and will file copies 
of such requests with the Depositary and mail a 
copy thereof to the Principal Underwriters and, 
upon receiving such recommendations or giving 
reasonable opportunity for such recommendations 
to be made, it will revise such schedule and rates of 
tolls as may be necessary or proper, in order that 
the Revenues of the Bridge will be sufficient at all 
times to meet the following under the provisions 
of this article: (a) to provide funds for the pay- 
ment of the cost of operation and maintenance; 
(b) to provide for making deposits to the credit of 
the Interest Account; (c) to provide for making 
deposits to the credit of the Reserve Maintenance 
Account; (d) to provide for making deposits to 
the credit of the Debt Service Reserve Account; 
and (e) to provide for making deposits to the 
credit of the Sinking Fund Account. Provided, 
however, that such schedule and rates of toll shall 
be at all times sufficient to produce Net Revenues 
not less than the Principal and Interest require- 
ments for such fiscal year for all Bonds issued 
under the provisions of this Ordinance, as com- 
puted at the time of delivery of the Bonds, plus an 
amount as a Reserve of not less than twenty per 
cent (20%) for such fiscal year's Principal and 
Interest requirements. 

A deposit to the credit of the Sinking Fund 
Account in any fiscal year of an amount in excess 
of the amount provided for in paragraph Fourth, 
Section 5.04 for such fiscal year shall not be taken 
into account in adjusting the schedules of tolls for 
any subsequent fiscal year or years; but any defi- 



ciency in the amounts deposited to the credit of 
the Sinking Fund Account and the Reserve Main- 
tenance Account in any fiscal year shall, as 
promptly as may be practicable, be added to the 
amounts required for the remaining fiscal years in 
adjusting such schedules of tolls, the amount so to 
be added in each of such subsequent fiscal years to 
be determined by the Consulting Engineers. 

The City covenants that if the total amount 
deposited to the credit of the Sinking Fund Account 
in any fiscal year shall be less than the amount 
required for such fiscal year, it will, before the 15th 
day of February of the following fiscal year, re- 
quest the Consulting Engineers to make their rec- 
ommendations as to a revision of the schedule of 
tolls, copies of such requests and the recommenda- 
tions of the Consulting Engineers, shall be filed 
with the Depositary and mailed to the Principal 
Underwriters. Anything in this Ordinance to the 
contrary notwithstanding, if the City shall comply 
with all recommendations of the Consulting Engi- 
neers in respect to tolls, the fact that the total 
deposits to the credit of the Reserve Maintenance 
Account or the Sinking Fund Account, as the case 
may be, in any fiscal year shall be less than the 
amounts referred to in Clauses (c) and (e) of this 
Section, will not constitute an event of default 
under the provisions of this Ordinance. In the 
event of any such deficiency, the Depositary or the 
holders of not less than fifteen per centum (15%) 
in principal amount of the Bonds then outstanding 
may, however, and the Depositary shall upon 
request of the holders of not less than fifteen per 
centum (15%) of the principal amount of the 
Bonds then outstanding and upon being indemnified 
to its satisfaction, institute and prosecute in a 
court of competent jurisdiction a proper action to 
compel the City to revise the schedule of tolls. 

The City covenants that forthwith upon the 
adoption of any Revised schedule of tolls certified 
copies thereof will be filed with the Depositary and 
mailed to the Principal Underwriters. 

Section 5.02. Collection of Fees, Rates and, 
Charges. The City covenants that tolls will be 
classified in a reasonable way to cover all traffic 
so that the the tolls may be uniform in application 
to all traffic falling within any reasonable class 
regardless of character of any person, firm or cor- 
poration participating in the traffic, that no re- 
duced rate of toll will be allowed within any such 
class except through the use of commutation or 
other tickets or privileges based upon frequency or 
volume, that no free vehicular passage will be 
permitted over the Bridge, except to officers, em- 
ployees and representatives of the City while in 
the discharge of their official duties, police officers 
of the United States, of the State of Illinois and 
State of Indiana and of their political subdivisions. 

Section 5.03. Receipt and Deposit of Revenues — 
Calumet Skyway Bridge Revenue Fund. The City 
covenants and agrees that all Revenues provided 
for in this Article V, as and when received will be 
received and held by the City in trust hereunder 
and accounted for through a special fund to be 
designated the "Calumet Skyway Bridge Revenue 
Fund" (sometimes referred to as "Revenue Fund" 
which is hereby created). All such Revenues, 
whether held by the City or deposited with the 
Depositary, as herein provided shall nevertheless 
be disbursed, allocated and applied solely to the 
uses and purposes hereinafter in this Article V set 
forth, and shall be accounted for separate and 
apart from all other moneys, funds or other re- 
sources of the City. All moneys at any time paid

into the Revenue Fund shall be held by the City in 
trust for the benefit of the holder or holders from 
time to time of the Bonds issued hereunder and 
the coupons appertaining thereto and entitled to be 
paid therewith, and the City shall not have any 
beneficial right or interest in any of such moneys. 
All Revenues so deposited with the Depositary 
shall be disbursed by warrants to the City Treas- 
urer signed by the Mayor and countersigned by the 
Comptroller. The "Paying Agent", as trustee, shall 
disburse the funds represented by such warrants to 
the Bondholders as provided herein. 

Section 5.04. Establishment of Accounts. All of 
the Revenues, including all rates of toll and other 
charges and all other revenues, income or profits of 
any kind howsoever derived from operation of the 
Bridge shall be deposited by the City Treasurer 
with the Depositary and accounted for by the City 
Comptroller through the Bridge Revenue Fund 
created by Section 5.03 of this Article V. All 
moneys accounted for through the Bridge Revenue 
Fund during each fiscal year shall be applied in the 
following order of priority in the following respec- 
tive special accounts, viz. : 

(1) Operation and Maintenance Account, 

(2) Interest Account, 

(3) Reserve Maintenance Account, 

(4) Debt Service Reserve Account, and 

(5) Sinking Fund Account, 

each of which accounts, sometimes referred to as 
"Funds" is hereby created and each of which the 
City hereby covenants and agrees to maintain as 
provided in this Ordinance. All moneys in each of 
said accounts shall be held in trust by the City 
and shall be applied, used and withdrawn only for 
the purposes hereinafter authorized : 

(1) Operation and Maintenance Account. The 
City Comptroller shall draw warrants to the 
City Treasurer on the Bridge Revenue Fund to 
pay for repair, operation and maintenance of said 
Bridge but such warrants drawn during any 
fiscal year shall not exceed the amount budgeted 
by the City to the Operation and Maintenance 
Account for the then current fiscal year. In addi- 
tion thereto, a reasonable reserve for the next 
ensuing year (not in excess of one quarter of the 
amount budgeted for the current year) may be 
retained in the Bridge Revenue Fund. 

(2) The City Comptroller shall promptly 
allocate the remaining available revenues as 
follows and in the following order : 

First: To the Interest Account until there 
shall be in the Interest Account an amount 
equal to any unpaid interest then due on all 
outstanding Bonds, plus the interest to become 
due on the next ensuing interest payment date 
on all outstanding Bonds other than Bonds on 
which the interest is to be paid on such date 
from the Construction Fund pursuant to Sec- 
tion 3.01. 

Second: To the Reserve Maintenance Ac- 
count, such amount of the balance remaining 
after making the deposit to the Interest Ac- 
count (or the entire balance if less than the 
required amount) as may be required to make 
the amount deposited in such fiscal year to the 
credit of the Reserve Maintenance Account 
equal to the amount recommended by the Con- 
sulting Engineers, to be deposited to the credit 
of said Account during such year; provided, 
however, that if the amount so deposited to 
the credit of said Account in any fiscal year 



shall be less than the amount recommended 
by the Consulting Engineers, the requirement 
therefor shall nevertheless be cumulative and 
the amount of any deficiency in any fiscal year 
shall be added to the amount otherwise re- 
quired to be deposited in each fiscal year 
thereafter until such time as such deficiency 
shall have been made up, unless such require- 
ment shall have been modified by the Consult- 
ing Engineers in writing. Signed copies of 
such modification shall be filed with the De- 
positary and the City and mailed by the De- 
positary to the Principal Underwriters. 

Moneys held for the credit of the Reserve 
Maintenance Account shall be held as a re- 
serve for the purpose of paying the cost of 
major repairs, renewals and replacements, 
equipment or otherwise, whether caused by 
normal wear and tear or by unusual and ex- 
traordinary occurrences; improvements; en- 
gineering expenses relating to the functions 
of the Bridge; premiums on insurance carried 
under the provisions of this Ordinance; and 
in the case of an insufficiency of moneys in the 
Operation and Maintenance Account all ex- 
pense chargeable to said Operation and Main- 
tenance Account under the terms of this Or- 
dinance; and shall be disbursed only for such 
purposes, except as hereinafter provided. 

The City shall from time to time transfer 
any moneys from the Reserve Maintenance 
Account to the credit of the Sinking Fund 
Account upon the receipt of a certificate of 
the Consulting Engineers certifying that the 
amount so to be transferred is not required 
for the purposes for which the Reserve Main- 
tenance Account has been created. 

If at any time the amount in the Interest 
Account and the Debt Service Reserve Ac- 
count shall be insufficient for the purpose of 
paying the interest on the Bonds as such in- 
terest becomes due, then the City shall trans- 
fer from the Reserve Maintenance Account to 
the Interest Account an amount sufficient to 
make up any such deficiency. Any moneys so 
transferred from the Reserve Maintenance Ac- 
count shall be restored by the City from the 
first available moneys in the Revenue Fund, 
subject to the same conditions as are pre- 
scribed for deposits to the credit of the Re- 
serve Maintenance Account. 

Third: To the Debt Service Reserve Ac- 
count, until there shall be in this account an 
amount equal to one-fifteenth (1/15) of the 
par value of all Bonds outstanding, all moneys 
in this account to be retained by the Deposi- 
tary and invested as in this Ordinance pro- 
vided. All moneys in this account shall be used 
and withdrawn to the extent necessary for the 
purpose of paying the Interest, Sinking Fund 
payments and the prinicipal of the Bonds in 
the event no other Bridge Revenue Funds are 
available for such purposes. Whenever the de- 
posits in the Debt Service Reserve Account 
exceed one-fifteenth (1/15) of the par value 
of Bonds outstanding such excess shall be 
transferred to the Sinking Fund Account. 
Any moneys withdrawn to meet Interest and 
Sinking Fund requirements shall be replaced 
out of the first money available therefor. 

Fourth: Starting January 1, 1964, to the 
Sinking Fund Account, to be held therein un- 
til there shall have been allocated to this ac-

ARTICLE VI. 

Covenants of the City. 

Section 6.01. Equality of Security. All Bonds, 
regardless of the date of issue and sale, shall be 
secured by a lien on the Net Revenues of said 
Bridge and on all accounts or funds created there-

Depositary, any Paying Agent and the Fiscal 
Agent hereunder and on all income, interest or 
profits thereon; and all Revenues and funds re- 
maining from time to time in the accounts as pro- 
vided herein are pledged to and constitute a trust

resulting from any failure on the part of the City 
to comply with the provisions of this Ordinance, or 
for any failure on the part of the City to transmit 
Revenues to the Depositary, the Fiscal Agent, or 
any Paying Agent, or for the misapplication of 
Revenues by the City contrary to the provisions 
hereof. Nothing contained herein, however, shall 
prevent the Depositary within its discretion, from 
making any investigation or taking any action 
which it may deem necessary or desirable in the 
interest of the holders of the Bonds with respect 
to the proper custody and application of Revenues 
in accordance with this Ordinance. 

Section 6.02. Equality of Bond's. All Bonds 
authorized hereunder shall rank equally as to se- 
curity, regardless of the time or times of their 
issue, and shall be entitled to no priority one over

rial maturities, with respect to any Revenues or 
other funds pledged as security therefor or avail- 
able for the payment thereof.

ing fund payments due hereunder in strict con- 
formity with the terms of such Bonds and of this 
Ordinance, and that it will faithfully observe and 
perform all the conditions, covenants and require- 
ments of this Ordinance and of the Bonds issued 
hereunder. 

Section 6.04. Against Encumbrances, Sale or 
Lease of Said Bridge. The City covenants that it 
will not create or give, or permit the creation or 
giving, of any mortgage, lien or pledge on any 
City-owned personal or real property or equipment 
constructed, purchased or used in connection with 
or related to said Bridge and the operation thereof 
or upon any Revenues or other funds pledged or 
held hereunder, except as security for all the 
Bonds issued hereunder, and that it will not per- 
mit the sale, lease or other disposition of said 
Bridge, or any part thereof, but the City may sell 
or dispose of property no longer required for said 
Bridge in accordance with Section 7.05 hereof. 

Section 6.05. Paying Agents. So long as any of 
the Bonds remain outstanding the City will at all 
times keep in each city in which any of the Bonds 
shall be expressed to be payable, as to either prin- 
cipal or interest, an office or agency where the 
Bonds and the interest coupons which by their 
terms are payable in such city may be presented 
for payment. 

Section 6.06. Limitation upon Amendatory Or- 
dinances. The City will not adopt any ordinance 
or take any action or proceeding for the purpose of 
amending, altering or modifying any of the provi- 
sions of this Ordinance, except in the manner and 
subject to the limitations set forth in Article IX 
of this Ordinance. 

Section 6.07. Insurance. The City covenants 
that upon the purchase of any real property re- 
quired in the construction of said Bridge it will 
obtain a policy of title insurance from a recognized 
title insurance company or a certificate of title 
under the Torrens System insuring the City for 
the full purchase price or cost of acquisition of 
such real property. 

The City shall take out and maintain or other- 
wise provide for (i) fidelity insurance or a fidelity 
bond or bonds covering all employees, at any time 
employed on said Bridge, who receive or handle 
Revenues of the Bridge, in an amount sufficient to 
cover the maximum amount of Revenues so re- 
ceived or handled by each such employee during 
any calendar week; (ii) public liability insurance 
in an amount of not less than $100,000 for injuries, 
including death, to any one person, and, subject to 
the same limitation for each person, in an amount 
of not less than $300,000 for injuries, including 
death, to two or more persons on account of any 
one accident in connection with the operation of 
said Bridge; (iii) so long as any of the bonds here- 
in authorized remain outstanding the Bridge shall 
at all times be insured with responsible insurers 
against the r'sks of direct losses or damage caused 
by or resulting from fire, lightning, floods, rising 
waters, ice, collision, explosion, strikes, riots, civil 
commotions, sabotage, malicious damage, tornado, 
wind storm, earthquake and collapse, and subsid- 
ence resulting in failure of the bridge or any part 
thereof, to the greatest amount obtainable, not 
exceeding the full insurable value, having due re- 
gard to the terms and conditions of the policies 
and the coverage of risks provided thereunder ; and 



(iv) use and occupancy insurance covering loss of 
revenues from the Calumet Skyway Toll Bridge 
by reason of necessary interruption, total or par- 
tial, in the use thereof resulting from damage to 
or destruction of any part thereof however caused, 
with such exceptions as are ordinarily required by 
insurers carrying similar insurance, in such amount 
as the Consulting Engineers shall estimate is suffi- 
cient to provide a full normal income during the 
period of suspension of use; provided, however, 
that such insurance shall cover a period of sus- 
pension of not less than twelve (12) months and 
such longer period as the Consulting Engineers 
shall approve, and that such insurance may ex- 
clude losses sustained by the City during the first 
seven (7) days of any total or partial interruption 
of use ; and provide further, that if at any time the 
City shall be unable to obtain such insurance to the 
extent above required, either as to the amount of 
such insurance or as to the risks covered thereby, it 
will not constitute an event of default under the 
provisions of this Ordinance if the City shall carry 
such insurance to the extent reasonably obtainable. 
All policies providing use and occupancy insurance 
shall be made payable to and deposited with the 
City, and the City shall have the sole right to re- 
ceive any proceeds of such policies and to collect 
and receipt for claims thereunder; provided, how- 
ever, that any and all proceeds of use and occu- 
pancy insurance paid to the City shall be deposited 
by it forthwith to the credit of the Bridge Reve- 
nue Fund. All insurance premiums payable with 
respect to any of the foregoing insurance or fidel- 
ity bo^s shrvll be oaid from the Revenues or the 
proceeds of sale of the Bonds. 

The City shall deliver to the Depositary in the 
month of January of each year a schedule signed 
by the City Comptroller setting forth the insur- 
ance policies then outstanding and in force upon 
or in connection with or incidental to said Bridge, 
including the names of the insurers which have is- 
sued the policies and the amounts thereof and the 
property or risks covered thereby (including lia- 
bility risks). 

Whenever the City shall fail to take out or main- 
tain any insurance required or permitted under 
this Ordinance (either as to class of risks or 
amount thereof) which in the discretion of the 
Depositary is obtainable at reasonable cost and 
upon reasonable terms, or is deemed by the De- 
positary to be necessary or desirable in the inter- 
ests of the holders of the Bonds, the Depositary, 
in its discretion, may effect such insurance in the 
name of the City and bill the City therefor. The 
proceeds of all insurance, except as provided here- 
in, shall be paid to and collected by the City and 
used in the discretion of the City to repair or re- 
place any Bridge property damaged, injured or 
destroyed, or deposited in the Sinking Fund Ac- 
count. 

Section 6.08. Accounts. The City covenants 
that it will keep and provide accurate books and 
records of account showing all Revenues received 
from said Bridge and the daily tolls collected and 
all expenditures relating thereto, showing the ex- 
penditures for maintaining, operating and repair- 
ing the Bridge and that all such books and records

remain outstanding, the City will prepare and file 
with the Depositary a statement of the Revenues 
and expenditures for such fiscal year and a balance 
sheet, taken at the close of such fiscal year, for 
said bridge accompanied by a certificate or opin- 
ion in writing of an independent certified public 
accountant of recognized standing, selected by the 
City, and satisfactory to the Depositary. The City 
covenants that it will cause a consolidated sum- 
mary of such Revenues and all expenditures and 
balance sheet for said Bridge to be published, not 
later than one hundred and fifty days after the 
close of each fiscal year, in a daily newspaper 
printed in the English language and published and 
of general circulation in the City of Chicago, Illi- 
nois. Copies of such consolidated summary as so 
published shall be delivered to the Depositary in 
such reasonable quantities as may be requested by 
the Depositary for distribution to investment 
bankers, security dealers, and others interested in 
the Bonds, and to the Holders of Bonds requesting 
copies thereof, but the Depositary shall not be re- 
quired to incur any expense in making the distri- 
bution. All the reports and other documents re- 
quired under this Ordinance shall be available for 
inspection by the Holders of the Bonds at the of- 
fice of the City Comptroller. 

Section 6.09. Maintenance of Powers. The City 
covenants that it will at all times use its best ef- 
forts to maintain the powers, functions, duties and 
obligations now reposed in it pursuant to law, and 
will not at any time voluntarily do, suffer or per- 
mit any act or thing the effect of which would be 
to hinder, delay or imperil either the payment of 
the indebtedness evidenced by any of the Bonds 
or the performance or observance of any of the 
covenants herein contained. 

Section 6.10. Further Assurances. The City 
covenants that it will make or adopt and execute, 
or cause to be made, adopted and executed, any 
and all such further ordinances, acts, deeds, con- 
veyances, assignments or assurances as may be 
reasonably required for effectuating the intention 
of this Ordinance, and for the better assuring and 
confirming unto the Holders of the Bonds of the 
rights and benefits provided in this Ordinance. 

Section 6.11. Prompt Acquisition and Construc- 
tion. The City covenants that upon the receipt of 
the Proceeds of Bonds issued under the provisions 
of the Ordinance, the Department of Public Works 
will forthwith proceed to construct said bridge and

expedition practicable in accordance with plans 
and specifications or approved alterations thereof. 

The Department of Public Works is directed to 
employ a Consulting Engineer to act as the co-or- 
dinating engineer and to function as general con- 
sultant or as supervising engineer to co-ordinate 
the work of all engineers selected by the Depart- 
ment of Public Works with the advice of the co- 
ordinating engineer to develop contract documents 
and to expedite all work to the end that the Bridge 
project will be completed as early as possible. 

The City covenants that promptly after the open- 
ing for traffic of any portion of the Bridge and its 
approaches it will deliver to the depositary a cer- 
tificate signed by the Commissioner of Public 
Works stating the date upon which such opening 
occurred. 

ARTICLE VII. 

Administration of Bridge Operation. 

Section 7.01. Management. The City covenants 



that while any of the Bonds issued hereunder are 
outstanding, in order to assure the efficient man- 
agement and operation of the Bridge and to assure 
the Holders of the Bonds hereby authorized that 
the Bridge will be economically and efficiently op- 
erated on the basis of sound business principles, 
it will operate and maintain the Bridge under the 
direction of the Department of Public Works or 
such other City department as the City Council 
may from time to time ordain. 

Section 7.02. Maintenance and Operation of 
Bridge. The City covenants that at all times it 
will use its best efforts to see that said Bridge 
shall at all times be operated and maintained in 
first class repair and condition and in such man- 
ner that the operating efficiency thereof shall be 
of the highest character and so that all lawful or- 
ders of any governmental agency or authority 
having jurisdiction in the premises shall be com- 
plied with (provided the City shall not be required 
to comply with any such orders so long as the 
validity or application thereof shall be contested 
in good faith ) ; and that it will use its best efforts 
to see that the cost of such operation and main- 
tenance shall at no time be in excess of Revenues 
reasonably available for such purposes so long as 
any of the Bonds remain outstanding. The City 
will, out of Revenues, from time to time, duly pay 
and discharge, or cause to be paid and discharged, 
all taxes (if any), assessments or other govern- 
mental charges lawfully imposed upon said Bridge 
or upon any part thereof, or upon the Revenues, 
when the same shall become due, as well as any 
lawful claim for labor, materials, or supplies which, 
if unpaid, might by law become a lien or charge 
upon said Bridge, or which might impair the se- 
curity of the Bonds. 

Section 7.03. Consulting Engineer. The City 
covenants that while any of the Bonds issued here- 
under are outstanding, it will continuously employ 
a Consulting Engineer experienced in the construc- 
tion and operation of toll bridges who shall have 
no financial or other interest in the ownership or 
operation thereof. Such Consulting Engineer shall 
be appointed by the Mayor subject to the approval 
of the City Council. The Consulting Engineer so 
appointed and employed each year need not be the 
same individual or firm. Said Consulting Engineer 
shall inspect the Bridge, make reports thereon, 
and advise and make recommendations to the City 
in connection with the operation thereof, and shall 
prepare a recommended budget for operation and 
maintenance expenses of the Bridge. Copies of each 
report and recommendation of the Consulting En- 
gineer shall be sent, as soon as available but not 
later than one hundred twenty (120) days prior 
to the commencement of each fiscal year, to the 
City Comptroller ; provided, however, that the City, 
for and on its own behalf, may employ such en- 
gineer or engineers in addition to the Consulting 
Engineer as it may desire. It shall be the duty of 
the Consulting Engineer in the preparation of the 
recommended budget to report upon and set forth 
his advice and recommendation with respect to the 
maintenance and operation of the Bridge during 
the preceding fiscal year and any recommendations 
with respect to maintenance and operation of the 
Bridge for the ensuing fiscal year, including any 
revision of rates, fees and charges, insurance, and 
other advice to the end that the Bridge shall at 
all times while any of the Bonds are outstanding 
be maintained in good repair and operating condi- 
tion and shall be operated in accordance with 
sound business principles and upon an efficient

basis. The Consulting Engineer shall attend all 
public hearings on the budget. 

The City covenants that at least once in each 
month during the construction of the Bridge it will 
cause the Consulting Engineers to prepare a prog- 
ress report in connection with the acquisition of 
real property for the Bridge and its approaches 
and a progress report including construction com- 
parisons between the actual time elapsed and the 
actual costs and the estimates of such time and 
costs which shall have been set forth in a state- 
ment prepared by them and filed with the City. 
Copies of such progress reports shall be filed with 
the Depositary and mailed to the Principal Un- 
derwriter. 

Section 7.04. Toll Bridge Maintenance and Op- 
eration Budget. 

(a) The City Comptroller shall prepare and file 
with the City Council a preliminary budget of 
maintenance and operating expenses of said Bridge 
and proposed capital expenditures for the ensuing 
fiscal year as provided by law. 

(b) The Corporate authorities, or the finance 
committee, if there is one, shall prepare the budget 
in a tentative form, and in this form shall make 
the ordinance conveniently available to public in- 
spection for at least ten days prior to final action 
thereon, by publication in the journal of the pro- 
ceedings of the corporate authorities or in such 
other form as the corporate authorities may pre- 
scribe. Not less than one week after the publica- 
tion of this tentative ordinance, and prior to final 
action thereon, the corporate authorities, or the 
finance committee, shall hold at least one public 
hearing thereon. Notice of this hearing shall be 
given by publication in a newspaper having a gen- 
eral circulation in the municipality at least one 
week prior to the time of the hearing. Such pre- 
liminary budget as set forth in the tentative ordi- 
nance, subject to amendment and final adoption, 
shall become the annual budget herein provided 
for and when so finally adopted is herein called the 
"Budget". In this connection it is the intent of the 
parties that the statutory provisions relating to 
appropriations be complied with. 

(c) Limitations on Expenses. The City shall not 
incur expenses for operation and maintenance of 
said Bridge in any fiscal year in excess of the rea- 
sonable and necessary amount thereof, and shall 
not expend any amount or incur any indebtedness 
for such expenses for such year in excess of the 
amount provided therefor in the Budget for such 
fiscal years as finally adopted. 

Section 7.05. Limitation on Sales of Bridge 
Property. The City shall have the right to sell or 
otherwise dispose of any property, real or personal 
no longer necessary, appropriate or required for 
the use of, profitable to, or for the best interest of 
the City operation of said Bridge as provided by 
law. 

The net proceeds of the sale of any such prop- 
erty so sold and the compensation awarded to the 
City under any condemnation proceedings for the 
taking of any such property shall be deposited in 
the Sinking Fund.

cluding particularly the funds set forth in Article 
V hereof, and for the payment of all Bonds and the 
interest thereon, and for all other payments pro- 
vided or required by this Ordinance, and for the

plus of not less than $10,000,000 for the deposit

tary in the City of Chicago, State of Illinois, is

ments herein and in the Bonds contained shall be 
taken as statements, promises, covenants and 
agreements of the City, and neither the City Treas- 
urer, City Comptroller, nor any depositary ap- 
pointed by him, nor any registration agent, fiscal 
agent or paying agent, assumes any responsibility 
for the correctness of the same, or makes any rep- 
resentations as to the validity or sufficiency of this 
Ordinance or of the Bonds or coupons, or shall in- 
cur any responsibility in respect thereof, other 
than in connection with the duties or obligations 
herein or in the Bonds assigned to or imposed upon 
them, respectively. 

Section 8.05. Security for Deposit. The City

signed or presented by the proper party or parties. 

Neither the Depositary nor any paying agent, 
fiscal agent or registration agent, respectively,

er of a Bond unless and until such Bond is sub-

Registration Agent or any Paying Agent, respec- 
tively, shall deem it necessary or desirable that a 
matter be proved or established prior to taking or 
suffering any action hereunder, such matter (un- 
less other evidence in respect thereof be herein 
specifically prescribed ) may be deemed to be con- 
clusively proved and established by a certificate of 
the City, signed in its name by the City Comp- 
troller, and such certificate shall be full warrant 
for any action taken or suffered under the provi- 
sions of this Ordinance or any supplemental ordi- 
nance, but in its discretion said Depositary and 
each such agent, respectively, may, in lieu thereof, 
accept other evidence of such fact or matter or 
may require such further or additional evidence as 
to it may seem reasonable. 

Section 8.07. Events of Default; Application of 
Revenues. The City shall be in default herein if one 
or more of the following events (herein called 
"events of default") shall happen, to wit: 

(a) If default shall be made in the due and 
punctual payment of the principal of any Bond 
when and as the same shall become due and pay- 
able. Provided, however, if the City has made 
available to the Depositary sufficient funds for 
the payment of the bonds as provided herein, 
there shall be no default; 

(b) If default shall be made in the due and 
punctual payment of any installment of interest 
on any Bond when and as such interest install- 
ment shall become due and payable, and such 
default shall have continued for a period of 
thirty (30) days; provided, however, if the City 
has made available to the Depositary sufficient 
funds for the payment of the interest of the 
bonds as provided herein, there shall be no de- 
fault ; 

(c) If default shall be made in the due and 
punctual payment or satisfaction of any Sink- 
ing Fund payment when and as such Sinking 
Fund payment shall become due and payable as 
in this Ordinance or any supplemental ordinance 
expressed, and such default shall have continued 
for a period of thirty (30) days. Provided, how- 
ever, the fact that total deposits to the credit 
of the Reserve Maintenance Fund or the Sink- 
ing Fund, as the case may be, in any fiscal year 
shall be less than the amounts referred to in 
clauses (c) and (e) of Section 5.01 will not con- 
stitute an event of default under this ordinance, 
if the City shall comply with all recommenda- 
tions of the Consulting Engineers in respect of 
tolls as provided by Section 5.01 of this Ordi- 
nance. 

(d) If default shall be made by the City in 
the observance of any other covenants, agree- 
ments or conditions on its part in this Ordinance 
or any supplemental ordinance or in the Bonds 
contained, and such default shall have continued 
for a period of ninety (90) days after written 
notice thereof given to the City by the Deposi- 
tary setting forth the nature of such default. 
Then and in each and every such case the hold- 
ers of not less than a majority in aggregate prin- 
cipal amount of the Bonds at the time outstanding 
shall be entitled, upon notice in writing to the 
City, to declare the principal of all of the Bonds 
then outstanding hereunder and the interest ac- 
crued thereon to be due and payable immediately, 
and upon any such declaration the same shall be- 
come and shall be immediately due and payable, 
anything in this Ordinance or in the Bonds con- 
tained to the contrary notwithstanding. 

All of the Revenues of said bridge, including all 



sums in the Revenue Fund provided for in Article 
V hereof upon the date of the happening of any 
event of default and all sums thereafter received 
by the City or Depositary hereunder shall be ap- 
plied by the City and the Depositary in the order 
following upon presentation of the several Bonds 
and coupons, and the stamping thereon of the pay- 
ment if only partially paid, or upon the surrender 
thereof if fully paid : 

First, to the payment of the costs and ex- 
penses of the holders of the Bonds in declaring 
such event of default, including reasonable com- 
pensation to their agents, attorneys and coun- 
sel, and to the payment of the cost and expenses 
of the Depositary, acting as trustee and attor- 
ney in fact for the Bondholders in carrying out 
the provisions of this Section 8.07, including rea- 
sonable compensation to its agents, attorneys 
and counsel; 

Second, in case the principal of the Bonds 
shall not have become due and shall not then be 
due and payable, to the payment of the interest 
in default in the order of the maturity of the 
installments of such interest, with interest on 
the overdue installments at the rate of five (5) 
per cent per annum, such payments to be made 
ratably to the persons entitled thereto without 
discrimination or preference ; 

Third, in case the principal of the Bonds shall 
have become and shall be then due and payable, 
to the payment of the whole amount then owing 
and unpaid upon the Bonds for principal and 
interest, with interest on the overdue principal 
and installments of interest at the rate of five 
(5) per cent per annum, and in case such moneys 
shall be insufficient to pay in full the whole 
amount so owing and unpaid upon the Bonds, 
then to the payment of such principal and inter- 
est without preference or priority of principal 
over interest, or of interest over principal, or of 
any installment of interest over any other in- 
stallment of interest, ratably to the aggregate of 
such principal and interest. 

Section 8.08. Rights of Holders of Bonds upon 
Default. Subject to any contractual limitations 
binding upon the holders of any of the Bonds (in- 
cluding the provisions of Section 8.09 hereof and 
any other limitations herein upon the exercise of 
any remedy to holders holding a specific proportion 
or percentage of the bonds), any holder of Bonds 
shall have the right, for the equal benefit and pro- 
tection of all holders of Bonds similarly situated: 

(a) By mandamus or other suit, action or 
proceeding at law or in equity to enforce his 
rights against the City and the City Council and 
any of its officers, agents and employees, and to 
require and compel the City or the City Council 
or any such officers, agents or employees, to per- 
form and carry out its and their duties and ob- 
ligations under the Laws of the State of Illi- 
nois and its and their covenants and agreements 
with the holders of the Bonds as provided in 
this Ordinance or any Supplemental Ordinance; 

(b) By action or suit in equity to require the 
City and the City Council to account as if they 
were the trustee of an express trust ; or 

(c) By action or suit in equity to enjoin any 
acts or things which may be unlawful or in vio- 
lation of the rights of the holders of the Bonds. 
No remedy conferred hereby upon any holder of 

Bonds is intended to be exclusive of any other 
remedy, but each such remedy is cumulative and 



8752 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 9, 1954 



in addition to every other remedy and may be ex- 
ercised without exhausting and without regard to 
any other remedy conferred hereby. No waiver of 
any default or breach of duty or contract by the 
holder of any Bond shall extend to or shall affect 
any subsequent default or breach of duty or con- 
tract or shall impair any rights or remedies there- 
on. No delay or omission of the holder of any Bond 
to exercise any right or power accruing upon any 
default shall impair any such right or power or 
shall be construed to be a waiver of any such de- 
fault or acquiescence therein. Every substantive 
right and every remedy conferred upon the holders 
of the Bonds may be enforced and exercised from 
time to time and as often as may be deemed ex- 
pedient. In case any suit, action or proceeding to 
enforce any right or exercise any remedy shall be 
brought or taken and then discontinued or aban- 
doned, or shall be determined adversely to the 
holders of the Bonds, then, and in every such case, 
the City and the holders of the Bonds shall be 
restored to their former positions and rights and 
remedies as if no such suit, action or proceeding 
had been brought or taken. 

Section 8.09. Depositary to Act as Trustee for 
Bondholders. The Depositary appointed (and the 
successive respective holders and registered own- 
ers of the Bonds and interest coupons, by taking 
and holding the same, shall be conclusively 
deemed to have so appointed the Depositary) shall 
act as trustee to represent the Bondholders in the 
matter of exercising and prosecuting on their be- 
half such rights and remedies as may be available 
to such holders under the provisions of the Bonds 
and this Ordinance as well as under the Law or 
other provisions of applicable law. Upon any de- 
fault or other occasion giving rise to a right of 
such trustee to represent the Bondholders, such 
trustee may take such action on behalf of the 
Bondholders as may seem appropriate to it and, 
upon the request in writing of the holders or reg- 
istered owners of twenty (20) per cent in prin- 
cipal amount of all the Bonds then outstanding, 
which request shall specify such default or oc- 
casion and the action to be taken by the trustee, 
and upon being furnished with indemnity satis- 
factory to it, such trustee shall take such action 
on behalf of the Bondholders as may have been 
so requested. 

Except as in this Section 8.09 provided, no hold- 
er or registered owner of any Bond or of any in- 
terest coupon pertaining to any Coupon Bond shall 
have any right by virtue or by availing of any 
provision of this Ordinance or the Law or other 
provisions of applicable law to institute any suit, 
action or proceeding, at law or in equity, for the 
appointment of any trustee in bankruptcy, re- 
ceiver, liquidator or custodian of the Revenues 
and other funds pledged or held hereunder, unless 
such holder or registered owner shall previously 
have given to the trustee written notice of an ex- 
isting default, and unless, also, there shall have 
been tendered to the trustee security and indemni- 
ty satisfactory to it against all costs, expenses and 
liabilities which might be incurred in or by rea- 
son of such action, suit or proceeding, and unless, 
also, the holders or registered owners of twenty 
(20) per cent in aggregate principal amount of 
all the Bonds then outstanding shall have request- 
ed the trustee in writing to take action with re- 
spect to such default and the trustee shall have 
declined to take such action or failed so to do 
within thirty days thereafter; it being intended 
that no one or more holders or registered owners 
of Bonds or interest coupons shall have any right 



in any manner to institute or prosecute any ac- 
tion, suit or proceeding for the appointment of a 
trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, liquidator or cus- 
todian of the Revenues and other funds pledged or 
held hereunder, except in the manner herein pro- 
vided, and for the equal, proportionate benefit of 
all holders and registered owners of outstanding 
Bonds and interest coupons; provided that noth- 
ing contained in this Ordinance or in the Bonds 
shall affect or impair the obligation to pay the 
principal of, premium (if any) and the interest on 
the Bonds as therein provided, or shall affect or 
impair the right of action, which is absolute and 
unconditional, of the holders or registered owners 
of the Bonds to otherwise enforce payment thereof 
by virtue of the contract embodied in the Bonds 
and in this Ordinance and the Law and other ap- 
plicable statutes and provisions of law or to en- 
force any of the covenants or provisions in the 
Bonds, this Ordinance, the Law, or other applic- 
able statutes or provisions of law except as here- 
inabove provided with respect to suits, actions or 
proceedings for the appointment of any trustee 
in bankruptcy, receiver, liquidator or custodian of 
the Revenues and other funds pledged or held 
hereunder. 

Section 8.10. Depositary Constituted Attorney- 
in-Fact for Bondholders. The Depositary is hereby 
appointed (and the successive respective holders 
and registered owners of the Bonds and interest 
coupons issued hereunder, by taking and holding 
the same, shall be conclusively deemed to have so 
appointed it) the true and lawful attorney-in-fact 
of the respective holders and registered owners of 
the Bonds and interest coupons, with authority to 
make or file, irrespective of whether the Bonds or 
any of them are in default as to payment of prin- 
cipal or interest, in the respective names of the 
holders and registered owners of the Bonds or in- 
terest coupons, or in behalf of all holders and reg- 
istered owners of the Bonds, or of interest cou- 
pons pertaining to the Bonds, as a class or classes, 
any proof of debt, amendment of proof of debt, 
petition or other document, to receive payment of 
any sum or sums becoming distributable on ac- 
count thereof, and to execute any and all other 
papers and documents and to do and perform any 
and all acts and things for and in behalf of the 
respective holders of the Bonds or interest cou- 
pons, or in behalf of such holders and registered 
owners as a class or classes, as may be necessary 
or advisable in the opinion of such attorney-in- 
fact in order to have the respective claims of such 
holders or registered owners of Bonds or interest 
coupons allowed in any equity receivership, insol- 
vency, liquidation, bankruptcy or other proceed- 
ings to which the State of Illinois or the City may 
at any time be a party, and to receive payment of 
or on account of such claims; and each and every 
receiver, assignee or trustee in bankruptcy is here- 
by authorized by each of the respective holders 
and registered owners of the Bonds and interest 
coupons to make such payments to such attorney- 
in-fact, and, in the event that such attorney-in- 
fact shall consent to the making of such payments 
directly to such holders or registered owners, to 
pay to such attorney-in-fact any amount which 
may be due to it for compensation and expenses, 
including counsel fees, incurred by it up to the 
date of such distribution. 

Section 8.11. Resignation, Merger, Consolida- 
tion or Removal of Agents, and Appointment of 
Successor Agents. Any Depositary, Paying Agent, 
Registration or Fiscal Agent appointed hereunder 
may resign or be removed by the City at any time 



December 9, 1954

upon the giving of not less than thirty (.30) days 
written notice thereof. It may be discharged of its 
duties and obligations imposed upon it by account- 
ing to the City as to all funds and securities held 
by it and upon the delivery of said funds, securi- 
ties, and all books and records to the successor: 
provided, that in the case of any such resignation 
or removal the City shall forthwith and within 
ten (10) days prior to the effective date of such 
resignation, or simultaneously with any such re- 
moval, appoint a successor. Any successor shall 
deliver to the City Comptroller an acceptance in 
writing of such appointment hereunder and shall 
thereupon, as such successor, be fully vested with 
all moneys, properties, rights, powers and duties 
of its predecessor with like force and effect as if 
originally named as provided by this Ordinance. 
Any company into which any agent may be 
merged or with which it may be consolidated, pur- 
suant to any proceedings authorized by law, shall 
forthwith become and be constituted a successor 
agent hereunder; provided that such merger or 
consolidated company is then authorized under the 
laws of the State of Illinois to perform all of the 
duties and obligations imposed upon such agent 
hereunder. 

ARTICLE IX. 

Modification and Amendment of the 
Ordinance. 

Section 9.01. Amendment by Two-Thirds Con- 
sent of Bondholders. This Ordinance and the rights 
and obligations of the City and of the holders and 
registered owners of the Bonds and Coupons may 
be modified or amended at any time by Ordinance 
supplemental hereto adopted by the City Council 
pursuant to the affirmative vote at a meeting of 
Bondholders, or with the written consent without 
a meeting, of the holders of 66%% in principal 
amount of all of the Bonds then outstanding; no 
such modification or amendment shall extend the 
maturity of or reduce the interest rate on, or 
otherwise alter or impair the obligation of the 
City to pay the principal or interest or redemption 
premiums at the time and place and at the rate 
and in the currency provided therein of any Bond 
without the express consent of the holder or reg- 
istered owner of such Bond, nor permit the crea- 
tion by the City of any mortgage or pledge, or 
lien on the Bridge, or upon any Revenues or other 
funds pledged or held hereunder, nor reduce the 
percentage of Bonds required for the affirmative 
vote or written consent to an amendment or modi- 
fication, nor, without the written assent thereto, 
modify any of the rights or obligations of the De- 
positary, the Fiscal Agent or any Paying Agent 
at the time acting hereunder. 

Section 9.02. Bondholders' Meetings. The City 
Council may at any time call a meeting of the 
holders of Bonds. Every such meeting shall be 
held at such place in the City of Chicago, State of 
Illinois, as may be specified in the notice calling 
such meeting. Written notice of such meeting, stat- 
ing the place and time of the meeting and in gen- 
eral terms the business to be submitted, shall be 
given by the City Clerk to the Registration Agent 
who shall mail, postage prepaid, not less than 
thirty (30) days nor more than sixty (60) days 
before such meeting, (a) to each registered owner 
of Bonds then outstanding, at his address, if any, 
appearing upon the books of the Registration 
Agent, and (b) to each holder of any Bond pay- 
able to bearer who shall have filed with the Reg- 
istration Agent an address for notices, and such 



notice shall be published by the City Clerk at least 
once a week for two (2) successive weeks in a 
daily newspaper published in the English language 
and having a general circulation in the City of 
Chicago, State of Illinois, and also by similar pub- 
lication in a newspaper published in the City of 
New York, State of New York, the first such pub- 
lication to be not less than thirty (30) nor more 
than sixty (60) days prior to the meeting; pro- 
vided, however, that the mailing of such notice 
shall in no case be a condition precedent to the 
validity of any action taken at any such meeting. 

Section 9.03. Attendance in Person or by Proxy. 
Attendance and voting by Bondholders at such 
meeting may be in person or by proxy. Owners of 
registered Bonds may, by an instrument in writing 
under their hands, appoint any person as their 
proxy to vote at any meeting for them. 

In order that holders of Bonds payable to bearer 
or their proxies may attend and vote without pro- 
ducing their Bonds, the City Council may make 
and from time to time vary such regulations as it 
shall think proper for the deposit of Bonds with, 
or exhibit of Bonds to, any banks, bankers, trust 
companies or other depositaries wherever situated, 
and for the issue by them, to the persons deposit- 
ing or exhibiting such Bonds, of certificates in 
form approved by the City Comptroller which 
shall constitute proof of ownership entitling the 
holders thereof to be present and vote at any such 
meeting and to appoint proxies to represent them 
and vote for them at any such meeting in the 
same way as if the persons so present and voting 
either personally or by proxy, were the actual 
bearers of the Bonds in respect of which such 
certificates shall have been issued and any regula- 
tions so made shall be binding and effective. 
Copies of such regulations shall be kept on file in 
the office of the City Comptroller in Chicago, Illi- 
nois. Officers or nominees of the City may be 
present or represented at such meeting and take 
part therein, but shall not be entitled to vote 
thereat. 

Any registered owner of Bonds or any holder of 
a certificate provided for in this Section 9.03 shall 
be entitled in person or by proxy to attend and 
vote at such meeting as holder of the Bonds regis- 
tered or certified in his name, without producing 
such Bonds. All others seeking to attend or vote 
at such meeting in person or by proxy must pro- 
duce the Bonds claimed to be owned or repre- 
sented at such meeting, and all persons seeking to 
attend or vote at such meeting in person or by 
proxy shall, if required, produce such further 
proof of Bond ownership or personal identity as 
shall be satisfactory to the City Comptroller. All 
proxies presented at any meeting shall be deliv- 
ered to the Inspectors of Votes and filed with the 
City Comptroller. 

Section 9.04. Chairman. Persons named by the 
City Comptroller shall act as temporary Chairman 
and Secretary of any meeting of Bondholders. A 
permanent Chairman and a permanent Secretary 
of such meeting shall be selected by the Bond- 
holders and proxies present by a majority vote of 
the par value of Bonds represented. The perma- 
nent Chairman of the meeting shall appoint two 
Inspectors of Votes who shall count all votes cast 
at such meeting, except votes on the election of 
Chairman and Secretary as aforesaid, and who 
shall make and file with the Secretary of the meet- 
ing their verified written report in duplicate of all 
such votes so cast at said meeting. The ballots, if 
any, cast at the meeting shall not be attached to

such election report, but shall be filed separately 
with the City Comptroller. 

Section 9.05. Quorum, and Adjournments. The 
holders of not less than 66%% in principal amount 
of all Bonds outstanding constitute a quorum for 
the transaction of business. Less than a quorum, 
however, shall have power to adjourn from time 
to time without any other notice than the an- 
nouncement thereof at the meeting; provided how- 
ever, that if such meeting is adjourned by less 
than a quorum for more than thirty (30) days, 
notice thereof shall forthwith be mailed by the 
City Clerk at least seven (7) days prior to the 
adjourned date of the meeting in the manner pro- 
vided in Section 9.02 of this Article IX; and such 
notice shall be published by the City Clerk in the 
manner provided in said Section 9.02, at least once 
in each thirty (30) day period of such adjourn- 
ment. The failure to mail such notice as aforesaid 
shall in no case affect the validity of any action 
taken at any meeting held pursuant to such ad- 
journment. 

Section 9.06. Records of Bondholders' Meetings. 
A record, in duplicate, of the proceedings of each 
meeting of Bondholders shall be prepared by the 
permanent Secretary of the meeting and shall have 
attached thereto the original reports of the In- 
spectors of Votes and affidavits by a person or 
persons having knowledge of the facts, showing a 
copy of the notice of the meeting and setting forth 
the facts with respect to the mailing and publica- 
tion thereof under the provisions of Section 9.02 
hereof and, in a proper case, under the provisions 
of Section 9.05 hereof. Such a record shall be 
signed and verified by the affidavits of the perma- 
nent Chairman and the permanent Secretary of the 
meeting, and shall be delivered to the City Comp- 
troller. Any record so signed and verified shall be 
proof of the matters therein stated until the con- 
trary is proved. A true copy of any resolution 
adopted by such meeting shall be furnished to and 
mailed by the Registration Agent to each registered 
owner of Bonds outstanding hereunder and to 
each holder of any such Bonds payable to bearer 
who shall have filed with the Registration Agent 
an address for notices (but failure so to mail 
copies of such resolution shall not affect the valid- 
ity of such resolution) and notice of the fact of the 
adoption of such resolution (stating that a copy 
thereof is available for inspection at the office of 
the City Comptroller) shall be published by the 
City Comptroller at least once a week for two (2) 
successive weeks in a daily newspaper published in 
the English language and having a general circula- 
tion in the City of Chicago, State of Illinois, and 
also by like publication in a newspaper in the City 
of New York, State of New York, the first publica- 
tion in each case to be made not more than ten 
(10) days after the date of the adoption of such 
resolution. Proof of such mailing and publication 
by the affidavit or affidavits of a person or persons 
having knowledge of the facts shall be filed with 
the City Comptroller. No such resolution adopted 
by such meeting shall be binding unless a valid 
ordinance of the City Council be passed containing 
the modifications or amendments authorized by the 
resolution adopted by such meeting. A copy of said 
ordinance of the City Council, certified by the City 
Clerk, or other duly authorized officer of the City 
Council, shall be filed with the Registration Agent. 
If such an ordinance of the City Council is adopted 
then the ordinance adopted by the City Council 
shall be deemed conclusively to be binding upon 
the City and the holders of all Bonds and coupons 
(except as otherwise hereinabove specifically pro- 
vided in this Article) at the expiration of sixty 



(60) days after such filing, except in the event of 
a final decree of a court of competent jurisdiction 
setting aside the resolution adopted by such meet- 
ing of Bondholders or annulling the action taken 
thereby in a legal action or equitable proceeding 
for such purpose commenced within such sixty 
(60) day period. Nothing in this Article contained 
shall be deemed or construed to authorize or per- 
mit, by reason of any call of a meeting of Bond- 
holders or of any right expressly or impliedly con- 
ferred hereunder to make such call, any hindrance 
or delay in the exercise of any right or rights con- 
ferred upon or reserved to the Bondholders under 
any of the provisions of this Ordinance or of any 
ordinance amendatory hereof or supplemental 
hereto or of the Bonds issued hereunder. 

Section 9.07. Amendments by Written Consent 
of Bondholders. The City Council may at any time 
adopt a valid ordinance amending the provisions 
of the Bonds or of this Ordinance or of any ordin- 
ance amendatory hereof or supplemental hereto, 
or any two or more of the foregoing, to the extent 
that such an amendment is permitted by the pro- 
visions of Section 9.01 of this Article IX, to take 
effect when and as provided in this Section. A copy 
of such ordinance, together with a request to Bond- 
holders for their consent thereto, shall be mailed 
by the Registration Agent to Bondholders and 
notice of the adoption thereof shall be published 
in the manner provided in Section 9.06 of this 
Article IX for the mailing and publication referred 
to in that Section (but failure to mail copies of 
such ordinance and request shall not affect the 
validity of the ordinance when assented to as in 
this Section provided). Such ordinance shall not 
be effective unless and until there shall have 
been filed with the Registration Agent the written 
consents of the percentages of holders of outstand- 
ing Bonds specified in Section 9.01 of this Article 
IX and a notice shall have been published as here- 
inafter in this Section provided. Each such consent 
shall be effective only if accompanied by proof of 
ownership of the Bonds for which such consent is

Section 10.01. Liability of City Limited to Rev- 
enues. Notwithstanding anything in this Ordin- 
ance or in the Bonds contained, the principal of or 
interest on any Bond issued pursuant to this Ordin- 
ance shall not constitute a debt, liability or obliga- 
tion of the City within the meaning of any con- 
stitutional or statutory limitation or provision; 
and each such Bond and interest shall be payable 
exclusively from Net Revenues and shall be sec- 
ured by the pledge of Net Revenues ; and the City 
shall not be required to advance any moneys de- 
rived from the proceeds of taxes collected in the 
City for the use and benefit of the City, or from 
any source of income other than Revenues, for 
any of the purposes in this Ordinance mentioned, 
whether for the payment of the principal of or 
interest on the Bonds or for the maintenance and 
operation of said bridge. 

Section 10.02. Benefits of Bondholders Limited 
to Parties. Nothing in this Ordinance, expressed or 
implied, is intended or shall be construed to confer 
upon, or to give to, any person, firm or corpora- 
tion other than the parties hereto and the holders 
and registered owners of the Bonds and of the 
Coupons outstanding, any right, remedy or claim 
under or by reason of this Ordinance, and any 
covenants, stipulations, promises and agreements

the City shall be for the sole and exclusive benefit 
of the parties hereto, and of the holders of the 
Bonds and of the coupons outstanding. 

Section 10.03. Successor is Deemed Included in 
all References to Predecessor. Whenever in this 
Ordinance or any supplemental ordinance either 
the City or the Depositary or any Paying Agent, 
Registration Agent or Fiscal Agent is named or 
referred to, such reference shall be deemed to in- 
clude the successors or assigns thereof and all the 
covenants and agreements in this Ordinance con- 
tained by or on behalf of the City or by or on 
behalf of the Depositary or any such Agent shall 
bind and inure to the benefit of the respective 
successors and assigns thereof whether so express- 
ed or not. 

Section 10.04. Discharge of Ordinance. If all 
of the outstanding Bonds shall have matured, or 
shall have been duly called for redemption and the 



redemption date thereof shall have arrived, and if 
the City shall have deposited with the Depositary 
in trust, funds pursuant to this Ordinance sufficient 
to pay and available for the payment of all 
amounts due on all Bonds then outstanding, in- 
cluding all principal, interest and redemption pre- 
miums, if any, then, notwithstanding that any 
Bonds or interest coupons shall not have been 
surrendered for payment, the pledge of the Rev- 
enues provided for in this Ordinance and all 
other obligations of the City under this Ordinance 
shall cease and terminate. 

Any such funds held by the Depositary or any 
Paying Agent or the Fiscal Agent which have not 
been disbursed in the payment of bonds and int- 
erest as aforesaid during the period of ten years 
after the deposit referred to in the foregoing para- 
graph, shall be paid over to the City together with 
the schedule of the bonds not paid or redeemed 
and thereupon the Depositary is relieved of any 
further duty in the premises. 

No Bond or appurtenant coupon shall, after the 
maturity thereof either according to its terms 
or through call of such Bond for earlier redemp- 
tion, be deemed to be outstanding provided that 
moneys in the requisite amount for the payment 
thereof shall have been deposited with the Paying 
Agent, as trust funds, and are available for pay-

or other instrument of writing appointing such 
attorney may be proved by the certificate of any 
notary public or other officer authorized to take

State in which he purports to act, that the person 
signing such request, declaration or other instru- 
ment or writing acknowledged to him the execu- 
tion thereof, or by an affidavit of a witness of such 
execution, duly sworn to before such notary public 
or other officer. 

Except as otherwise herein expressly provided in 
Article IX hereof, the amount of Bonds transfer- 
able by delivery held by any person executing such 
request, declaration or other instrument or writing 
as a Bondholder, and the numbers thereof, and the 
date of his holding such bonds, may be proved by 
a certificate, which need not be acknowledged or 
verified, satisfactory to the Depositary, executed 
by a trust company, bank, investment banker, 
dealer, broker or other depositary wherever sit- 
uated, showing that at the date therein mentioned 
such person exhibited to or had on deposit with 
such depositary the Bonds described in such certifi- 
cate. Continued ownership after the date of deposit 
stated in such certificate may be proved by the 
presentation of such certificate if the certificate 
contains a statement by the depositary that the 
Bonds herein referred to are in fact held on deposit 
by such depositary and will not be surrendered 
without the surrender of the certificate to the de-

ance therewith.

more of the covenants or agreements, or portions 
thereof, provided in this Ordinance should be con- 
trary to law, then such covenant or covenants, such 
agreement or agreements or such portions thereof, 
shall be null and void and shall be deemed separ- 
able from the remaining covenants and agreements 
or portions thereof and shall in no way affect the 
validity of this Ordinance or of the Bonds, and 
the duties or responsibilities and rights imposed 
upon or granted to any agent contrary to or in

accorded to them under the Law or any other ap- 
plicable provisions of law.

partments of the City of Chicago shall arrange and 
designate vacation periods for the year 1955 as 
follows : 

All employes who have served the City for at 
least one year prior to the beginning of the 
vacation period, except those in skilled-labor and 
labor-service classes who are employed on a per 
diem basis, shall be given a vacation with pay 
during the year 1955 of two (2) weeks, and 
those employes compensated on a monthly or 
annual basis who have served the City fifteen 
years or more shall be granted a vacation of 
three weeks with pay. If the respective depart- 
ment heads think it advisable, vacations may be 
divided into two periods. 

All employes in the skilled-labor and labor- 
service classes who are employed on a per diem 
basis shall be given a vacation with pay during 
the year 1955 subject to the following condi- 
tions : 

1. Those employes who have worked for one 
year since the date as of which the latest 
previous vacation allowance was computed, or 
since entrance in the City's service, shall be 
given a vacation of not to exceed two calendar 
weeks and not in excess of eleven (11) work 
days during said two calendar weeks, and 
those who have served the City fifteen (15) 
years or more shall be granted a vacation of 
not to exceed three calendar weeks and not in 
excess of sixteen and one-half (16%) work 
days during said three weeks, in each case, at 
the rate of pay and under the conditions of 
employment covering those employes at the 
time the vacation is taken. 

2. Those employes who have worked for less 
than one year since the date as of which the 
latest previous vacation allowance was com- 
puted shall be granted a vacation proportion- 
ate to the amount of service actually rendered. 

3. Those employes who have been on duty 
disability whose time on such disability plus 
regular working time equals one year of serv- 
ice since the date as of which the latest pre- 



vious vacation allowance was computed shall 
be granted two weeks' vacation as provided in 
Section 1. In case the combined time equals 
less than one year, the period of duty disabili- 
ty shall be considered as regular service for 
the purpose of calculating a proportionate 
vacation. 

4. Working time shall include all days on 
which employment was had for the whole or 
for a part of the regular work day, but shall 
not include Sundays, holidays or the whole or 
a portion of a day allowed in excess of the 
regular work day as overtime. 

5. The department head shall designate 
when the vacation shall be taken and may 
divide such vacation into two periods if he 
thinks it advisable. 

6. Vacation time shall be charged to each 
department, bureau, or division in proportion 
to the amount of service rendered to each 
department, bureau, or division by employes; 

and 

Be It Further Ordered, All employes of the City 
of Chicago who have rendered service to the Coun- 
ty of Cook, the Chicago Park District or the Sani- 
tary District of Chicago shall have the right to 
have the period of such service credited and 
counted for the purpose of computing the number 
of years of service as employes of the City; and 
Be It Further Ordered, All employes, except 
those in the skilled-labor and labor-service classes 
who are employed on a per diem basis, may be 
given leave of absence with pay for periods not 
exceeding fifteen ( 15 ) days in the aggregate during 
the year on account of sickness or other cause for 
absence which may be considered by the depart- 
ment head a sufficient and legitimate excuse for 
the employe's failure to be present and in attend- 
ance upon his duties, provided that the reason for 
the absence and the good faith of the employe in 
making the application for such leave shall be 
shown to the department head by such reasonable 
evidence as he may require, either by a physician's 
certificate, personal affidavit or other means; and 
provided, further, that whenever a leave of ab- 
sence on account of sickness for over three (3) 
days is applied for, such application must be made 
to the head of the department in writing within 
said three (3) days, accompanied by a certificate 
from a physician stating the nature and severity of 
such sickness. 

Vacation and sick-leave periods may be com- 
bined, but only in the event the long-continued 
sickness of the employe warrants such course; 
should such long-continued sickness extend beyond 
twenty-nine (29) or thirty-six (36) days as pro- 
vided in the second paragraph of the vacation 
order, the extended sick leave shall be submitted to 
the Committee on Finance for approval; and 

Be It Further Ordered, There shall be exempt 
from the effect and operation of this order the offi- 
cers and employes of the Board of Education, the 
Chicago Public Library, the Municipal Tuberculosis

visory Staff", which shall be directly responsible 
to the Mayor. The Advisory Staff shall consist of 
three members to be appointed by the Mayor and 
confirmed by the City Council. The Mayor shall 
designate one of the members as Chairman and one 
as vice-chairman who shall act as chairman in the 
absence of the chairman. 

Initial appointments shall be for a term of one 
(1) year at the expiration of which the members 
shall" serve at the pleasure of the Mayor. Any va- 
cancy in the Advisory Staff shall be filled by ap- 
pointment in the manner prescribed for initial ap- 
pointments. 

Each member of the Advisory Staff shall be a 
person who, by virtue of his training, experience, 
and attainments is qualified to interpret, analyze, 
and appraise problems in one or more areas of mu- 
nicipal government and administration including, 
but not limited to, matters relating to the struc- 
ture and form of city government, municipal taxa- 
tion, housing and redevelopment, personnel, budg- 
eting, state and federal legislation, and metropoli- 
tan area developments affecting Chicago. 

In making appointments, the Mayor shall give 
preference to persons with professional training 
and experience in public administration, econom- 
ics, or political science. 

Section 2. Purposes.) The Advisory Staff shall 
make thorough and continuous studies in the fol- 
lowing areas of municipal affairs : 

(a) the structure and form of city govern- 
ment, including the distribution of powers be- 
tween various units of the city government; 

(b) the relationship between the City of Chi- 
cago and other governmental units in Cook 
County ; 

(c) the impact on Chicago of actual or pro- 
posed state and federal legislation ; 

(d) comparative trends and developments in 
municipal taxation and revenue systems and

bility to Chicago; 

(f) the management of any department of 
city government, but no such study shall be un-

ficer has been created by ordinance, at the re-

thereof shall publicize or make available to any 
person other than the Mayor and such officials as

recommendations of the Advisory Staff. The Mayor 
may however, make such reports, studies,_ and 
recommendations matters of public record if he 
deems it advisable. 

The Advisory Staff shall make an annual report 
of activities in March of each year to the City 



Council and the Mayor, and this report shall al- 
ways be a matter of public record. 

Section 4. Limitations.) Neither the creation of

of powers and responsibilities between agencies of 
city government as otherwise provided by ordi- 
nance. The Advisory Staff is not authorized to as- 
sume any of the powers and responsibilities pres- 
ently assigned to other agencies of city govern- 
ment. 

The Advisory Staff shall, to the fullest extent 
possible, utilize the services, facilities, and infor- 
mation (including statistical information) of other 
Government agencies as well as of private research 
agencies, in order that duplication of effort and 
expense may be avoided. 

Section 5. Consultation.) In exercising its func- 
tions and duties, the Advisory Staff may consult 
with such representatives of private and govern- 
mental groups as it deems advisable.

Placed on File — Communication Concerning Tax- 
Rate Litigation. 

The City Clerk transmitted the following commu- 
nication from the Corporation Counsel, which was, 
together with the copy of opinion transmitted there- 
with, Placed on File: 

City of Chicago 

Department of Law 

Public Improvements Division 

December 8, 1954. 
To the Honorable, The Members of the City Council 

of the City of Chicago : 

Re: Tax Rate Litigation 

Gentlemen — Transmitted herewith is opinion of 
the Illinois Supreme Court in the case of People 
ex rel Brenza vs. Morrison Hotel Corporation, Su- 
preme Court Case No. 33322. 

This was an appeal by the City of Chicago from 
a ruling of the County Court of Cook County which 
had sustained objections to the 1949 tax rate of 
the City of Chicago to the extent of two cents and 
four mills upon each $100.00 valuation. All por- 
tions of the judgment appealed from by the City 
were reversed and the net effect of the decision is 
to reduce the illegal portion of the 1949 rate to 
one cent and one mill. We have been advised that 
a petition for rehearing will be filed so the decision 
is not yet final. If no rehearing is allowed in this 
case the result will climax our efforts to reduce 
tax rate losses. 

The County Court has announced its findings as 
to the tax rate cases for the years 1950, 1951 and 
1952. We are not taking any appeal from the deci- 
sion on the 1950 or 1951 rates since we are of the 
opinion that the decisions are in accord with the 
evidence and the law as interpreted by our Su- 
preme Court. 

A summary of the tax rate litigation pertaining 
to the budgets for the years 1948 through 1951 
discloses that the following portions of those rates 
have been held illegal (figures are computed on 
each $100.00 valuation) : 

1948 .013 (one cent and three mills) 

1949 .011 (one cent and one mill) 

1950 .020 (two cents) 

1951 .019 (one cent and nine mills) 
Total 



The success which has resulted from the inten- 
sive campaign to reduce this type of loss is illus- 
trated by comparison with prior four year periods. 

1928-1931 .3450 (thirty-four cents and five mills) 

1932-1935 .600 (sixty cents) 

1936-1939 .24c (twenty -four cents) 

1940-1943 .620 (sixty-two cents) 

1944-1947 .3660 (thirty-six cents and six mills) 

1948-1951 .0630 (six cents and three mills) 

Expressed in percentages of the tax levy the 
average loss for the four year periods enumerated 
above was as follows: 

1928-1931 4i/o % 

1932-1935 6% 

1936-1939 21/2 % 

1940-1943 5V 4 % 

1944-1947 7% 

1948-1951 iy 2 % 

The average annual refund to objecting tax- 
payers during the respective four year periods is 
as follows: 

(These amounts are actual revenue losses since 
the money has already been spent when the cases 
are decided.) 

1928-1931 $1,500,000.00 

1932-1935 1,750,000.00 

1936-1939 770,000.00 

1940-1943 1,800,000.00 

1944-1947 2,500,000.00 

1948-1951 400,000.00 

The trial court's ruling on the 1952 tax rates 
holds nine mills on each $100.00 valuation illegal. 
It is believed, however, that a portion of this judg- 
ment can be reversed on appeal. Even if such an 
appeal were not successful, the illegality in 1952 
would amount to only three-fourths (%) of one 
per cent (1%) of the tax levy and would result in 
a refund of less than $250,000.00. 

The success of this type of litigation in recent 
years has not only reduced the illegality precent- 
age but it has discouraged a great volume of this 
litigation. The refund figures above for the period 
1948 through 1951 are estimates of what will be 
refunded based on the percentage of taxpayers 
securing refunds in prior years. We believe, how- 
ever, the ultimate pay-outs will be even less than 
those estimated because of the decreased number 
of persons objecting to tax rates of the City of 
Chicago. 

For the first time in the history of this type of 
litigation, the litigation is now current so that if 
mistakes are made in budgets they can be tested 
in the courts before being repeated in four or five 
succeeding budgets as has happened in previous 
periods. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Robert J. Nolan, 

Assistant Corporation Counsel.

The following is said annual appropriation ordinance as passed: 
Appropriation Ordinance for Year 1955. 

THE ANNUAL APPROPRIATION ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO 

FOR THE YEAR 1955.

other separate agencies of the City government are appropriated from the re- 
spective funds designated in this ordinance for the objects and purposes stated 
herein to defray necessary expenses and liabilities of the City of Chicago to be

Section 2. For the purpose of expenditure and accounting control the

of accounts as provided in section 7-13 of the Municipal Code of Chicago. 

Section 3. The Comptroller and heads of all departments and othei 
agencies of the city government shall administer the amounts appropriated in 
this ordinance by standard accounts as specified by code numbers and letters, 
designations of which may be amended or altered by the Comptroller to suit 
the need of proper classification in accordance with the standard classification 
of accounts and with the official manual of the City of Chicago issued by the 
Department of Finance in which are specified the details of commodities, serv- 
ices, benefits and claims chargeable to the respective standard accounts. 

Section 4. Where appropriations are made under Standard Accounts desig- 
nated by code letter "S" expenditures thereunder shall be accounted for under

poses of operation and administration under the following Standard Accounts: 
C, F, G, H, J and L. 

Section 5. The appropriation herein of amounts for the payment of 
"liabilities," of "contract liabilities" or of "unpaid bills" shall not be construed 
as an approval of any such liabilities or bills, but shall be regarded only as an 
appropriation for the payment thereof when they have been found to be valid 
and legal obligations against the City of Chicago and have been properly 
vouchered and audited. 

Section 6. The appropriations herein made for salaries and wages accounts 
shall be regarded as maximum amounts to be expended under such respective 
appropriation accounts. Expenditures under such accounts shall be further

regardless of whether such title is printed in the singular or plural. The salary 
or wage rate fixed herein shall be regarded as the maximum salary or wage rate 
for the respective titles of positions, provided, however, that the wage rates 
herein fixed on a daily basis or a weekly basis are subject to change during the 
fiscal year in accordance with the prevailing wage rates in private employment 
for such daily or weekly employes as may be authorized by the City Council. The

office or position herein appropriated for, the head of the department in which 
any such vacancy occurs shall not be required to fill such office or position if 
in his judgment and discretion there is no necessity therefor. 

Section 7. The estimates of current assets and liabilities as of January 1, 
1955, the estimates of the amounts of such assets and of the revenues of 1955 as 
are appropriable, and the amounts appropriated and the objects and purposes 
thereof, are as follows:
